Mike Cullity fell for golf in his youth and has been writing about the game for the better part of two decades. A former city high-school champion who played briefly at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., Cullity earned a master’s degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism before joining the staff of Golfweek in 1995. Before Global Golf Post hired him in 2013, he wrote about golf for several other prominent publications, including Golf Digest, Golf World, the Masters Journal and the Boston Globe Magazine. Working from his home in New England, Cullity strives to return his handicap to single digits while navigating the challenges of fatherhood and a short season.

Handicap: 13

Favorite Courses: That I've played: Bandon Dunes. That I want to play: Augusta National.
